About Julie Ciaraldi

Greetings, we are Julie and Peter Ciaraldi. I am a realtor with Swan Realty located in Methuen Massachusetts and have looked at many lake front homes over the years! My husband and I and our 3 children love to travel! Usually we do not like to visit the same place twice. After vacationing at Lake Winnipesaukee we knew we had found a place that we could back to time and time again! We hope you love it as much as we do!

Julie Ciaraldi purchased this house in 2014

Why Julie Ciaraldi chose Laconia

We fell in love with Lake Winnipesaukee while visiting friends one summer and knew immediatly we wanted to buy a second home there. Our must haves included a quiet cove with a private dock. We also wanted a private beach where we could walk into the water. We hoped to find a home with a large screened in porch and oversized deck for entertaining. We also need enough bedrooms to accomidate our family of 10! It took us 7 years but we found our dream home! Hope you and your family will love our home as much as we do! Welcome and enjoy!

Really perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion this past summer with my husband's family. Ages ranged from 25 to 85. The pictures don't do the house justice especially from a roominess perspective. All of my family remarked the same thing. The beautiful sandy beach, the gradual decline of the water and the spacious flat yard made this the perfect place for my mother-in-law and would have been ABSOLUTELY perfect for my niece and nephew with their 2 young kids. Unfortunately they had a last minute conflict and couldn't take advantage.

All of our family members would find some nook and cranny to hang out in, then we'd reconvene to either the spacious living room, screened porch or large deck. We'd also light up the fire pit. While some of us surrounded it directly, others would enjoy viewing it from the deck which was the perfect distance away. There was plenty of seating no matter where you were. Plenty of room to sleep and very comfortable. My late owl nephew would sleep on the beautifully appointed day bed tucked away on the screened porch (looked straight out of House & Garden btw). The interior is well appointed and updated. LR spacious, yet warm and inviting. My only comment would be around the upstairs bathroom. A wee bit small, but really not a big deal given all the other things I've mentioned. And we were only there when it was time to sleep anyway.

The house is located in an upscale neighborhood and is very private. Yet, it's also remarkably close to everything. We had a mishap with a wine glass, and I wanted to replace it. Home Goods was a quick ride away, as was the grocery store when we needed some supplemental supplies.

Julie was also amazing. We had some confusion during check in and she was right there readily available to help us. It was clear also that she'd also do whatever she needed to make sure we were ok. Truly a professional.

This was our first experience with HomeAway, and I have to say that Julie has set a high standard. Thanks Julie for helping us create some really great memories! We'd definitely come back doubt.

Lake Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the best family vacation ever! This lake house so reminded me of my youth! So very comfortable and relaxing. We played corn hole, horseshoes and grilled on the deck every night. Took the Pontoon out every day with the kids and Island hopped. Loved the no wake zone in front of the house and felt so comfortable while the young kids played in the water. Although we spent most of our time outdoors, the inside of the lake house was so cozy. Great kitchen and large living room that the whole family could fit in to play board games. Renting for 2 weeks next year as we just didn't want to leave! The owner, Julie ,gave us so much great info for all the local hotspots and activities and just made the vacation wonderful. We highly recommend spending your next vacation here!

Awesome Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at this amazing lake house! The house is in a quiet no wake zone, so the water is nice and calm. We enjoyed swimming right from the beach and off of the dock. The house itself has plenty of room fro everyone while still having that cozy feel. We will definitely be staying here again! I would recommend this to anyone looking to have a relaxing vacation at the lake!

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the best summer vacation staying here! The home is charming, cozy and right on the water. We had ten people in our party and had plenty of room for all. The kids had so much fun as they kayaked, paddle boarded and swam right from the beach. We brought our Pontoon Boat and went fishing, anchored at sand bars and saw beautiful fireworks in Meredith. There are some great restaurants near by but we choose to grill every night as it was so easy to relax on the deck and watch the kids play in the water. I would highly recommend this home to families with small children and older parents. We have already booked for next year and hope to make this a summer tradition!

Fall get a way!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here and had the best time! Booked it spur of the moment to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary! The owners were so great and helped us plan a special weekend. We loved the gas fireplace in the family room and the stunning views of the lake! We made camp fires at night and sat on the beach to look at the amazing star filled sky! Climbed Mount Major and took some great pictures. Had romantic dinners at Lago's, Canoe and O's Restaurant! One of the best Anniversary's I can remember!

Summer paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough great things about this home! We rented in August of last year with another family. There were 13 of us in total. We had plenty of room to spread out as there are 2 bedrooms on the first floor and 2 on the second floor. The sleeper sofa and the day bed were great extra sleeping spots too! Being right on the lake and having a beach was so convenient as we had little children in our group. We also loved this location as it is in a no wake zone, very quiet and peaceful. Most nights were beautiful but we were happy to have Central A/C on a couple of steamy days. We spent most of out time in the screened in porch and huge open deck. We took the kids to Weirs and Meredith as it was only a 5-10 minute drive or boat ride. It was so great to have our pontoon boat on the dock at the property and not have to go to the marina! I have recommended this house to all my family and friends and have already booked again for next summer!
